Software errors in the fuel pump can cause certain Infiniti vehicles to run out of gas.
Engineers determined when the amount of fuel is low in the main tank, the pressure regulator may not open and send fuel from the sub tank to the main tank. This can cause the fuel level in the main tank to be too low for the fuel pump to send fuel to the engine, which can cause the engine to stop running while driving.Technology. It’s awesome, until it isn’t.
The recall involves the 2016-2018 Q50 and the 2016 Q60 with 2-liter engines.keep reading article "Out of Gas? Blame Your Fuel Pump's Software"
Issues with the self-driving software that tend to happen soon after starting up, have led to the recall of 60,000 Q50 sedans.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't released details of the Q50 recall, but the problem is apparently the steering system key that can malfunction and cause the self-driving capabilities to have problems with the steering. Infiniti says problems could also occur to the turning radius of the cars due to a software problem in the systems.
This is just a hunch, but I doubt this will be the last we hear of self-driving complaints as Infiniti irons out the kinks.keep reading article "Q50 Recalled to Fix Self-Driving Software"
Anyone else getting the feeling there's a major issue with Nissan and Infiniti's Occupant Classification System (OCS)?
For roughly the 103rd time, Nissan announced an OCS recall. The difference is this one is a doozy at 3.8 million vehicles.
Nissan says the occupant classification systems in the front passenger seats can turn off because the systems classify an adult as a child or classify a seat as empty even if an adult is in the seat.
That will disable the airbags for someone who really needs it. But there's something else.…keep reading article "For The Love Of Everything, Another Infiniti OCS Recall"
X35, Q50, QX60, and G27 are all named in a lawsuit against Infiniti's parent company, Nissan, for an allegedly defective Occupant Classification System (OCS).
Plaintiff Matthew Senci filed the proposed class-action lawsuit that alleges the vehicles have occupant classification system software that can incorrectly classify a front passenger seat as empty when it's occupied by an adult passenger. The error can cause the airbag to deactivate and fail to deploy in a crash.
Complaints and warranty claims led to the first OCS recall in March 2013, but it was limited to only 83,000 vehicles. Nissan later admitted, however, that the "fix" for that recall didn't work when they expanded the OCS recalls.
The lawsuit, Matthew Senci v. Nissan North America, Inc., accuses the automaker of being deceptive and selling vehicles with known defects.keep reading article "Faulty Occupant Classification System Leads to Recall"
